Ideas Congress [ICON]

Students from most faculties and year-levels at the university can elect to take ICON. As a class, they work with a community partner to analyze and approach broad social issue from a multidisciplinary perspective. A unique aspect of the course is that there are no clear rubrics or mark breakdowns established. Students are informed about bare minimum requirements, but are encouraged to think beyond how to perform to meet expectations, and engage in conversations with the instructors regarding appropriate learning goals and outcomes based on their discipline and year-level.

Engaging for Change

This project emerged from ongoing conversations among a number of organizations in the Guelph-Wellington region about the nature of social planning and decision-making in our current complex web of networks. These conversations led to the development of a more structured partnership, the launch of several interconnected projects, and the joint submission of a proposal for funding called “Engaging for Change: Practicing Collaboration and Planning in Guelph-Wellington”.
